Metalogix StoragePoint Achieves VSPEX Labs Validation
Metalogix StoragePoint Undergoes Rigorous Testing as Part of a VSPEX Solution to Drive Performance of SharePoint Environments for Customers
WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Metalogix, the leading provider of content infrastructure software to improve the use and performance of enterprise content on Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, today announced that Metalogix StoragePoint has been validated as part of an EMC® VSPEX Proven Infrastructure offering for SharePoint.
Metalogix StoragePoint is the leading Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) product that externalizes SharePoint content to improve overall TCO, boost speed and simplify backup. StoragePoint moves unstructured SharePoint data, known as Binary Large Objects (BLOBs), from the SQL Server to affordable external storage tiers, including SAN, NAS or the Cloud. StoragePoint shrinks full SharePoint backup times by automatically and continuously backing up externalized BLOBs.
VSPEX enables customers to combine their choice of industry-leading applications, such as SharePoint and StoragePoint, server, network, and virtualization with EMC's VNX family of unified storage and next generation backup and recovery technology. By leveraging and integrating technologies such as Remote BLOB Storage (RBS), data deduplication, compression and EMC Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST), customers will benefit from simplified administration and lower costs.
"The combination of StoragePoint within the EMC VSPEX proven Infrastructure for SharePoint will prove to be a huge boost to organizations looking to improve the use and performance of their SharePoint environments," said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. "The amount of business content accessed through SharePoint is growing by 75 percent every year and organizations are looking for a better way to improve availability, lower storage costs and reduce the risk of managing multi-terabyte farms. When Metalogix StoragePoint is deployed with EMC VSPEX for SharePoint, they will have a pre-configured purpose-built solution that can be quickly deployed to improve their SharePoint infrastructure and significantly reduce operational and management overhead."
